Avoiding the behavioristic traps with the Minimal Cognitive Grid

Antonio Lieto will explain how to avoid the behavioristic traps with the Minimal Cognitive Grid. Below there is the abstract of his work Lieto, A. (2021). Cognitive design for artificial minds. Routledge.

“The enormous success of modern AI systems (e.g. in computer vision, natural language processing etc.) has led to the formulation of the hypothesis that
such systems – since are able to obtain human or superhuman level performances in a number of tasks – actually have acquired the underlying competence that we humans possess in order to exhibit the same kind of behavior. This hypothesis, I argue, is however based exclusively on a behavioristic analysis of (some of) the output produced by such systems. And, as such, it is methodologically problematic. In this talk I will show how by using a tool known as Minimal Cognitive Grid (MCD, introduced in Lieto 2021)  it is possible to avoid this behavioristic trap and, in addition, to compare and rank, in a non subjective way, different types of artificial systems based on their biological or cognitive plausibility”.
